Interim VAT Management


A senior team with additional experience and talent

There could be various reasons why more senior level support is needed:

  • The company faces strategic, operational or IT challenges and needs to adapt fast
  • The indirect tax function is temporary not available (maternity leave, faces conflicting priorities, etc.)

What we offer

  • Our team is highly experienced having held senior indirect tax posts within the Big 4 and industry
  • As tax experts we also speak the language of the business and IT and no translation is needed
  • We are open to discuss resourcing options, including taking part of the current tax team on a sub-contract or temporary basis if this is helpful.

Bring in our senior VAT/IT team

  • Proven industry and consultancy leaders: highly experienced having held senior indirect tax posts within the Big 4 and industry
  • Substantial experience of working in both the EU member states and in countries outside the EU and managing international teams on multi-jurisdictional projects
  • Strong technical tax and IT expertise
  • Proven project and change management (soft) skills

What we were asked to do

  • To run a project
  • To run an effective tax team with the practical knowledge and fresh perspective to help quickly plan and then implement a comprehensive and sustainable plan
  • To support in recruiting our replacements (global head of indirect tax, VAT manager) to realize that a client builds up its own department. We then gradually will leave our roles and support the new tax function in the transition to become successful
  • Depending on the agreed scope our senior team is or could be supported by experienced and motivated professionals with backgrounds as accountants and tax advisers within the Big 4 and industry and knowhow and tooling of our alliance partners.

We have therefore also the capacity to provide the services you require and sufficient flexibility should that need grow or reduce over time.
